    Not sure if anyone has made this topic yet-- but does anyone see AirDrop a little buggy on the 5S and 5C? I tried to airdrop some pictures and it wouldn't find my 5S from my sister's 5C and when I tried to turn airdrop off it wouldn't let me.

    Works fine for me between my iPad, my Macbook Pro, as well as my GF's iPad and iPhone (Air's, 5S and 5)

    It works better if you set it to Everyone and I find it takes up to a minute to find another if it's next to you but as you use it seems to get better in my experience

    Also for some reason it works better if you have wifi on as well as Bluetooth

    Everything I have read has indicated that airdrop only works between iOS devices and iOS7 but does not work with Mavericks. I have been trying everything I know to drop pictures between my MacBook Pro the only easy solution I have found is to iMessage photos between devices.

    Okay, that may be the reason her phone couldn't find mine because it was set to contacts only. Thank you!

    Are you on a dev account? I am running Mavericks 10.9.2.

    I have a dev account. Currently running 10.9.1 so they added this feature to 10.9.2? Might be worth the download for this feature alone.

    I installed 10.9.2 and still yield the same results, no compatibility between the Macbook Pro and the iPhone 5s ... Hmmm, which version of iOS are you using?

    Does your son have an iOS device running iOS 7 and did you follow the steps outlined via the link below?

    There are times when I've tied to use Airdrop between my Retina Mini and my 5S and it won't work till I restart whatever device I'm trying to send from. Not very fast or convenient since I could just email it faster.

    AirDrop works perfectly between my 5s and original iPad Mini.

    I have an iphone 5 and my daughter just got an iPhone 5c. Both have ios 7.1 installed. When I use airdrop for sending a pic, it worked fine. When I tried to send my daughter a contact card, all it sent her was the contacts name but no number or anything else.

    Interesting. I need to see if I can replicate this. Thanks for the heads up...

    Mine sends fine (iPod touch 7.0.6 to iPhone 5S 7.1):
